A teenager from Wisbech was left distraught after his wallet containing cash and sentimental photos was stolen from Peterborough Railway Station.
British Transport Police (BTP) officers have released a photo of a man they wish to speak to in connection with the theft, which took place just after 7pm in Starbucks coffee shop at the station on Saturday, November 29.
The victim, a 17-year-old boy, bought a drink and left his wallet on the counter by mistake before leaving the shop.
When a member of staff asked who it belonged to, a man came forward claiming the wallet was his. He took the wallet, left the shop, and then loitered around the station before walking out at about 7.20pm.
PC Daniel Hanna, the investigating officer, said: “The wallet contained cash and a number of sentimental and irreplaceable items including photos and a poem.
